Feelings and emotions
A webpage, linked to the PD&MU curriculum, that explains what feelings and emotions are, how they can affect your body, what might cause them and how to handle them.
This article by BBC Bitesize explains that everyone has feelings, that there are different types of emotions we might experience and that we should never be ashamed of our emotions. It explores how feelings and emotions might physically present in the body, and that feelings are a reaction to how your body is feeling.
The resource also includes a short animation and tips on how to manage emotions, as well as strong emotions.
